How can a state demobilize militants during a civil war? We study the effects of an information campaign to demobilize FARC rebels, when the Colombian government aired short information segments during games of the national football team between 2007 and 2016. Exploiting the quasi-random assignment of matches, we isolate the causal e ffect on demobilizations across all 1,122 Colombian municipalities. Exploring quasi-exogenous variation in kick-o times and rain across municipalities, our results reveal sizeable e ects of these messages that reached out to rebels, offering them the opportunity to reintegrate into the Colombian society.
Thousands of FARC rebels demobilized without the need to re a bullet.
